Information Network on QUiet European road Surface

The general objective of the project is to foster the use of low-noise road surfaces throughout Europe by disseminating the tools developed by the European project SILVIA.

The project will coordinate the communication and dissemination of past and present research pertaining to guidance on the use of low-noise technologies for road surfaces to European countries not involved in the previous research activities.
Dissemination will focus on the contents of the Guidance Manual developed by SILVIA (.Sustainable Road Surfaces for Traffic Noise Control). One of the main outputs of SILVIA  is an acoustic classification procedure for road surfacing materials  and technologies (presentation)

A series of workshops will be held in different European countries with an emphasis on EU New Member states.

A complementary objective of the INQUEST project  is to promote European harmonisation of testing methods and equipment for this purpose.
